The Clarets have been linked with a move for Wrexham Welsh Under 21 international, Neil Taylor. The 21 year old is a left-sided defender or midfielder who signed professionally for Wrexham in July 2007 after coming through their youth system.
He signed a contract extension in March 2008 keeping him at the Racecourse ground until 2010.
Most Clarets fans will be wondering though if a player plying his trade in the Conference could make the grade at Championship level.
In terms of players leaving Turf Moor, Clarets fans can only now wait and see who swoops in the summer to take our most valuable assets.
With Burnley now relegated to the Championship, we will be vulnerable to losing a number of key players. Barry Kilby is trying to make the right noises:
'I want to keep a strong as squad as possible to allow us to challenge again next. We don't have to sell players. Often in the past we have had to sell to balance the books and that is one big plus when we go into negotiations with players'
Fine words but when you know Chris Eagles will not want to play in the Championship and has already been getting the attention of other Premier League sides, you know it will be an uphill battle to keep such players.
Everton,Spurs and newly promoted, West Brom have all been linked with the former Manchester United midfielder. The Daily Mail now claims Owen Coyle is also targeting Chris Eagles as well as our top striker, Steven Fletcher.
Steven Fletcher appears to be another of our players catching the eye of Premier League managers. It is believed Bolton are prepared to offer the Clarets a pathetic £3 million for Fletcher, exactly the amount Owen Coyle paid Hibernian to bring the Scottish international to Turf Moor last summer.
Alan Nixon on Sunday though suggested Birmingham have also now entered the race with Alex Mcleish prepared to test the water with an initial £4 million bid.
Fletcher is one player who has not made any statements about his future in advance of the Clarets being relegated despite it being on the cards for some weeks now. It would be hard to imagine though, he would not be tempted to further his career in the top flight in Europe rather than risk his chances in the Championship.
If we are to lose our players, it would certainly be preferable to lose them to any club other than Bolton. I think Clarets fans have had enough of Coyle for one season
